The Turkish midfielder says the reigning Premier League champions have failed to match the standards of previous years under Pep Guardiola
Ilkay Gundogan has admitted that Manchester City “were left behind” by Liverpool in the title race this season.
Pep Guardiola guided City to a third Premier League crown in 2017-18, as his side blew away the competition to set a new all-time points record of 100. The Blues retained their crown the following season after edging a tense race ahead of Liverpool, who ultimately missed out on English football’s top prize by a single point.
City were tipped by many to continue their dominance, but the Reds are on the verge of knocking them off their perch after winning 27 of their 29 fixtures so far this season.
